Devin Reams wearing a teal shirt in front of a teal sign that says 'trouble'

Howdy! I’m Devin. I’m sensibly impulsive, consistently non-committal, and passionately impartial. I’m a technologist living in Denver, Colorado.

Miss Dewey Sucks

I want to talk about marketing production quality and how Miss Dewey lacks it. If you haven’t seen this site yet, it’s basically a search engine with a saucy librarian standing there being snarky and clever on occasion. If you don’t get around to typing in a search she’ll try to get your attention.

College Etiquette

I’ve been in college for two and a half years now and I’ve picked up on some things. Going to college at a huge, public university has been a great experience. Don’t like the kid you’re sitting next to today? That’s fine, there’s 398 more to pick from tomorrow. Looking to meet some new people? Good! You’ve got 30,000 to pick from!

9rules rocks

I had some free time today. Instead of a music video I did my own rap song in GarageBand. This song is dedicated to all those cool kids at 9rules. Enjoy.

Going Pink

While lots of people are changing a few lines of CSS I got up at 5:45am this morning to ‘Go Pink’ and help out. Denver hosts the largest Race for the Cure in the nation and I lent a hand this morning.

Five Tips for Interviewing

There was a time when I considered myself a pretty clever guy. I thought I had a lot of things figured out. Then last week came and went and I made the biggest oversight of my life: companies are already interviewing May 2007 graduates for full-time positions in September.

Blogging is Exciting

Exciting news for b5media and 9rules. I’ll be chastised for putting the two companies in the same sentence but that’s alright. b5media, one of my employers, raised $2 million in VC funding. 9rules, some of my best internet pals, has received some tasty cookies for all their great work. I don’t know which of these two rewards took more work…

How to work and study efficiently

This week is the perfect storm. Apparently professors are very good at taking the number of weeks in a semester and dividing by three because they all decided this was the week. My projects, presentations, papers and exams won’t catch me off-guard though; I saw them coming thanks to some foresight (a calendar).


The Oreo CEO himself has tagged me with a meme. I like this one because you can tell a lot by a person’s music.

External Stuff

Not everything I do online ends up here on my blog so I figured I’d point to an article I wrote on Women and Minority Entrepreneurs, resting on your laurels, priorities, and whether entrepreneurship can be taught. Additionally I’ve started a project documenting myself on video every day for 60 seconds. I’m on day five over at Mind Averse.


Haha, Branden and I were on zefrank’s “the show” today. Sigh.. now I have to come up with a Power Move.
